If you want to convert an audio video interleave (AVI) file to a Shockwave® Flash® (SWF) file, you can accomplish this by making use of a downloadable program. There are quite of a few of these programs online, many of them shareware and freeware. You typically will be able to use such a program to convert AVI to SWF with just a few clicks. It usually is advisable, however, to know the pros and cons of each file format before converting them.

AVI is a popular format for digital video files due to its superior video quality. The AVI file format was first introduced in 1992, but is still highly utilized for creating backup copies of digital versatile discs (DVDs). The disadvantage to be considered is that AVI files tend to be larger in size than some other formats with the same content, thereby leading to excessive use of storage space and longer processing times for uploading to the Internet.

SWF, variably known as either Shockwave® Flash® or Small Web Format, is favored for uploading animations or applets to the Internet in an efficient file size. It is a dominant container for vector graphics and multimedia online, again due to its convenient size. Search engines are able to parse and index SWF files online, thereby making it easy to find specific files. If you wish to upload or stream a small video file and the quality does not need to be the highest possible, you can convert AVI to SWF and benefit from the results.

To convert AVI to SWF, you need to locate a file format converter program online. Ascertain first that the program supports AVI as a source file format and SWF as an output file format. Download the program from a trustworthy website and install it on your computer.

Ensure that the AVI file you want to convert is already stored on your computer. Run the program and click on the "Add" button to select your AVI file from where it is saved. Configure the settings and choose the save location for your output file. Make sure to select SWF as your desired output file format if the program supports more than one output file format.

Once you have set the options to your preferences, click the "Start" button to convert AVI to SWF. When it is finished, you typically will find your new SWF file in the location you selected. The new SWF file should now be ready for uploading or streaming.
